The former Bachelorette star dished on her exes in her new tell-all book, It’s Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Ever After. What did she reveal about the Bachelor in Paradise stars?
According to Us Magazine, Dorfman wrote that her relationship with Murray was “volatile and f—ked up” and claims that he was very manipulative.
“[Murray] had an uncanny way of manipulating situations and conversations to make me feel like the worst person in the world,” Dorfman shared.
Dorfman even claims that Murray said she was a “bitch” and a “whore.”
At the same time, Dorfman also dished on Viall, her runner-up on The Bachelorette.
As fans will recall, Dorfman’s relationship with Murray started on shaky ground after Viall revealed that she had slept with him on the Fantasy Suite night.
The revelation was a huge surprise to Murray, who thought nothing intimate happened between Dorfman and Viall.
Indeed, Romper is reporting that Dorfman’s intimacy with Viall proved to be the undoing of her engagement.
“That one sexual escapade would become a power play used by my fiancé to justify his mistrust in me,” Dorfman explained. “It would be an excuse to call me a whore. And it would eventually lead to the demise of my engagement.”
Murray proposed to Dorfman during the finale of The Bachelorette. The couple broke off their promise to marry and parted ways several months later.
Apparently, Viall made the shocking announcement because he was unhappy about getting dumped.
“He [Viall] was angry that he had tried to reach out to me so many times before,” Dorfman stated. “And he felt hurt that I refused to see him.”
Although Andi Dorfman’s book was released back in May, it has been a hot topic on the current season of Bachelor in Paradise.
With Viall and Murray back in the dating game – and competing for the same girl – Dorfman’s allegations were brought up during Murray’s date with Amanda Stanton.
According to Bustle, Stanton confronted Murray about his relationship with Dorfman on the latest episode of Bachelor in Paradise. In response, Murray denied that any of the accusations are true and insisted that Dorfman is making everything up.
“[Andi] has not-so-kind things to say, and it’s very unfortunate that she would depict me in such a false way,” Murray told Stanton during their date. “I can’t comment on specific things in any kind of book that my ex has written because it’s a fictional story. There’s stuff that’s so ludicrous; how do you comment on stuff like that?”
Although Murray is clearly upset about Dorfman’s book, he did share a few kind words about his ex-girlfriend.
“I respect the private relationship we had for those 8 months and I choose to go through life building others up, not tearing them down,” Murray said. “I wish her nothing but the best in her new career and I pray she finds peace and happiness in her life.”
Meanwhile, apart from his comments about Dorfman, Murray has his hands full with Viall once again.
The two men are both going after Stanton on Bachelor in Paradise and, so far, it doesn’t look like things are going to end well for Viall.
Although Dorfman revealed some pretty dark secrets about Murray, Stanton appeared to believe his explanation and ultimately took his side in the matter.
Whether or not Murray’s new romance with Stanton will last longer than his engagement to Dorfman is yet to be seen.
Fans can watch the two men go head to head when new episodes of Bachelor in Paradise air Monday and Tuesday nights on ABC, and you can check out the preview below.
